Christchurch City Three Year Plan and Long Term Plan


Smart Choices banner

The Christchurch City Council’s Long Term Plan that will shape the city over the next 10 years.

The Plan covers everything we do and how we pay for it. This includes:

  • fixing roads, footpaths and storm water systems
  • repairing or rebuilding damaged community facilities
  • our share of the costs for Central City Anchor projects such as the New Central Library and Metro Sports Facility.

The Our City. Our Future campaign is a chance for everyone in Christchurch to help set priorities for the Long Term Plan.

Since taking office in 2013 the Council undertook to “open the books”  and be up front about the financial challenges arising from the earthquakes.

It commissioned reports from consultants Korda Mentha and Cameron Partners which revealed that some tough decisions will be needed if the Council is to avoid a potential funding shortfall of $800 to $900 million by 2017-19.

In developing the Long Term Plan the Council will need to consider a range of financial options and is keen to get your input on them.

Christchurch City Three Year Plan (adopted 28 June 2013)

The Council and Government agreed to delay Christchurch City Council’s Long Term Plan until 2015 so an earthquake recovery cost-sharing method could be worked out together. A Long Term Plan looks at the next decade but at this stage in the Christchurch rebuild we need a more appropriate planning mechanism with more immediate goals. We are still following all the principles laid down in the Local Government Act as they apply to any New Zealand local authority.

A final Christchurch City Three Year Plan was adopted by Councillors on 28 June. View the media release here.
